Good Tuesday morning.......

and welcome to day 2 of ISC's Christmas Card Extravaganza/Blog Hop. Today I will show you another Christmas card I made with one of the gorgeous new sets that were released yesterday and it is called "Festive Season". When I think festive, well the good old silver/white color combo comes to mind. So, I've got out some gorgeous silver paper I've got last year at Target of all places (love that place ;D) but since it is a little on the flimsy side I matted it on some True Black cs from PTI in combination with a white PTI cs base. But before I matted the silver paper I ran it through my Bug, my Cuttlebug that is, and used one of my new folders "Victoria" I've ordered back in August I believe and it finally arrived the end of September. Anyhow, I loved how crisp it came out and immediately I thought, hmmm lets combine it with the flourish of the Festive Season set. I tell ya, sometimes things work themselves out ;D. Since I had planned to use the gorgeous ornament included in this set to begin with it kind of was nice to give my card that little extra umph..... I stamped the flourish on a True Black cut Labels 4 piece in white. I planned on using a silver ink pad, but it was all tried out :C. For my ornament I stamped it on white PTI cs in VersaMark and embossed it with Filigree silver embossing powder and it looked just wonderful. As you can see the ornament has these flourishes on it so my mind went into overdrive and I remembered that I bought some cool glitter a long time ago (and never used it) and it would give those flourishes some more interest. So I added some Quicky Glue pen and applied the glitter. Have a look and see for yourself

Elegant Merry Christmas
